I also wanted to tell you about something school related--our SHARE class. This is the 2nd year my friend Kelly and I have led this class. SHARE stands for Staff Have Awesome Resources for Each other... and essentially it's a great collaborative group for sharing ideas and resources monthly with other K-1 teachers in our district.
One fun thing we do at each month's class is offer a "goodie"... you know how teachers LOVE a goodie! :o) We found these cute boxes and lowercase magnetic letters at Dollar Tree (SO happy to find lowercase!!).
I made a cute little label, removed the ribbon, VOILA--a new station box!
Here's the little game we included for our SHARE participants... 3 Ways to Play: CVC game!!
The concept is simple, with this one set of cards... you can play 3 different ways (match the word to the picture, word to a sentence, or spell the word with magnet letters and match it to the sentence)! There are 6 CVC words for each vowel making a total of 30 different CVC words included. I just gave away some copies on my new Facebook page and you can win one here too--I'll pick a random number from the comments left before midnight. :o)
